    You missed this out -

    "Twelve months ago we were paying £525 for every thousand bricks laid - now it's more like £575-600.

    "That's just barely going to get lads through the gate.

    "Whereas if you needed people sharpish we would have to go up to £650.

    "A good brickie can do a thousand bricks in a day - that's in a best case scenario with a labourer and just laying bricks 100 per cent flat out full time.

    "Me and Gaz were in a gang ourselves - I was looking back at our bookings from 2007 and we were getting paid £300 per thousand bricks.

    "So the rates have doubled - and we were still earning £800 a week back then."

              I thought it was an actual benefit but actually not. You overpay tax then get it back.

              vetran is right.

                Seems people in IT think they somehow earn good pay, £600 a day is pretty standard for Southern England even for a plasterer or electrician.

                I design idiot proof software. Trouble is, they keep making better idiots.

                    Except we aren't getting up with the sparrows and doing hard physical labour in all weathers to earn it.

                    I'm perfectly happy sitting on my arse in an air con office or at home and getting paid that thank you.
